Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox said Wednesday that Mexicans have "been offended" by President Donald Trump.

Fox appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to promote his new book, "Let's Move On: Beyond Fear & False Prophets," in which he describes Trump as "the West's most powerful false prophet."

He said on Wednesday that Trump's presidency is "based on fear," and that since 9/11, the U.S. "sees enemies everywhere, even in Mexico, your neighbor," and that Trump is "abusing" and "taking advantage of" this fear.

"We don't care about a wall being built in the United States, paid for by U.S. taxpayers. We don't care, but it's a waste of money. It doesn't work, it doesn't work at all for people."

When asked why he has been "aggressive" towards Trump, Fox answered: "We've been offended. We Mexicans, 120 million people, we've been offended. And so we want to explain what we are — what Mexico is all about. And we really are a trustful neighbor to the United States, that we are a solid partner, that we can work together, that we can make out of North America the most competitive region in the world. And all of that leads me to say the truth about Mexico and Mexicans."
